Allrighty, then...I'm calling bullshit a search using the word "jihad" and you will get two pages of references to various videos. All of the ones that are islamsist in origin have now been pulled for issues related to content. I have a number of them in my possesion, and not all of them contain graphic content. Some of them have guys just sitting in front of the camera and nattering on about something in Arabic.

So, what is the stock answer now? Whos calling the shots around here?

Not happy:

The "nattering" ones fall into a few categories: plain lecture/talking; lecture/talking cut or inset with other footage/images, some of which may be inappropriate; and ones that have likely rights problems (such as broadcast TV programs). The first type would still be here. The second type would depend on what the other content contained. The third would be darkened.

In a few cases, plain lecture videos may have been in a multi-video item along with other content that had problems. However, most/all of the plain lectures have been redundantly uploaded into separate items by various patrons anyway. In addition, audio-only versions of some lectures may also have been uploaded by patrons into the Open Source Audio collection.

If you have plain lecture videos, perhaps you have misremembered from which item(s) you have downloaded them. Or perhaps your downloads fell into one of the other categories after all.

BTW, "jihad" is an inadequate search term for the type of lecture material that apparently interests you. In fact, there *is* no adequate search term, as many of the items are very poorly or disparately labelled. If you were re-looking for some of the plain lecture ones you've downloaded, you may miss them on that basis.

Update on nattering, and more: As a subcollection of this new section, there is where you can now use iraq_middleeast as the search term to find the material that would apparently be of interest to you.
